E. Jean Carroll came out last Friday and accused, in New York Magazine, President Trump of raping her in a dressing room at tony Bergdorf Goodman department store in the mid 1990’s.
The author of a biography of Hunter Thompson, who lived with the gonzo journalist while writing the book detailing the sexcapades and strange lifestyle of Thompson, was on with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night.
While Trump has denied the accusations, stating he has never met her, Carroll caused Cooper to cut to commercial after realizing that the segment meant to drag the president’s name through the mud was a disaster.
Here is a part of the transcript below:
Cooper asked Carroll, “you don’t feel like a victim?” after she suggested that was the case.
A questionable Carroll replied, “I was not flung to the floor.”
Cooper retorted, “I think most people think of rape as a violent assault…”
And Carrol replied, stunning the CNN anchor, “I think most people think of rape as being sexy…”
Cooper not knowing how to follow up on that answer quickly cut the interview straight to a commercial break, but not before Carroll could add “…think of the fantasies.”
I do not know if Carroll’s telling the truth on what happen back in the ’90’s or what her present metal condition is, but she did harm her credibility last night in a similar way to how Christine Blasey Ford did during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
